The Astros have a grand total of five players with more than two years of major league experience, a first-year manager and a move to the American League to deal with, too. So how come they are so optimistic they can avoid becoming the first team in a half-century to lose 106 games in three consecutive seasons? (AP Photo/Pat Sullivan, File)
